But the idea that those two guys can successfully replace Adrian Amos, who had a bad year in 2022 during his fourth season with the Packers before leaving for the New York Jets this winter, is risky. John Johnson III, a former Cleveland Browns safety, is the only notable free agent left.
The Packers should add to the position even if Owens or Moore impress in training camp.
Darnell Savage, a former first-round choice, will be a free agent next spring. Meanwhile, Rudy Ford's one-year, $1.5 million contract shows how much the team values his long-term potential. Injury might weaken the Packers' safety group.
John Johnson played both safety positions and the slot for six seasons. “He’s the quintessential ‘glue guy’ who can move around like a chess piece on the back end of a defense,” Moton wrote on July 7.
